In a powerful show of solidarity, on June 15th, 2015 Dominicans protested at the Dominican consulate in New York City yesterday to say no to deportations. Deportations in the Dominican Republic of people of Haitian descent (or perceived Haitian descent) regardless of where they were born are set to begin this week in the Dominican Republic.
The community of Dominicans in the diaspora in New York, where the largest population of Dominicans outside of the mainland reside, planned this protest as part of a larger coalition to fight the deportations.
A petition have been created HERE to urge the Obama Administration to Pressure the government of the Dominican Republic to stop its planned deporting of 250,000 Haitian Dominicans.
